HNT: Breakthrough

Okay, September is here, and in New England, that means we’ve got just about a month left of warm-ish weather before the leaves start turning. Already it’s dark when I wake up in the morning, and it looks like I’ve only got a few more weeks of morning biking; I even dug up my battery powered headlamp so I can head out before the school buses.

This also means that my exercise-themed HNTs won’t be as common, since I’ll probably be less obsessed with fitness — or at least, I’ll be mentally able to focus on other things on this blog.

I stopped weightlifting for the last month to focus on more cardio, and it paid off in the form of my losing almost 8 pounds over the last six weeks or so. For the first time in years, I’m under 180 pounds. Here, check it out:

This is one of the last pics with my old phone. I’ve finally phased it out, and I’m completely in love with my Android / Galaxy S. In fact, after I pulled the picture form the old phone, I uploaded it with my GS, and used the WordPress app to set this up. I can’t believe how much happiness I”m getting out of a tiny, little bit of electronics.
